10:04 AM ET 05.07 | Philadelphia Eagles left guard Evan Mathis will miss the upcoming organized team activities and likely the summer minicamps as well, as Reuben Frank of CSN Philly reports that the offensive lineman had a minor ankle surgery that shouldn't be an issue by training camp. Mathis, 31, was a third-round pick in the 2005 NFL Draft of the Carolina Panthers, but didn't flourish in the league until he joined the Eagles in 2011. In March 2012, he received a five-year extension from the Eagles after a dominant 2011 season.

Even Evan? How is an ankle on a 302 lbs. guy minor surgery? Do they mean miner surgery, as in a pic axe to get in there?

Wouldn't losing one of last season's offensive lineman be a good thing for the Eagles?

It's minor surgery because it's being done by Doogie Howser, MD.

The new coach got depressed and gave the playbook to Fifty.

Stuff like that happens when the Chips are down.

I give Vick 4 games before he's seriously injured and out for the rest of the season.
